The carrying capacity of a roller bearing is increased to a greater extent by using larger diameter rollers rather than by increasing the number of rollers. Except for the difference in the end faces of the rollers, the rollers in the new SKF Type C spherical roller bearings are symmetrical. The close conformity and the uniform distribution of the load over the roller length--give an increased carrying capacity of approximately 15 percent. This means approximately three times longer fatigue life, a factor of no little importance. The bearings are pictured in several railway applications.
